Here the menu opens, but nothing happens when you click a paper size.

I have not tried printing. I suppose fit to paper size would work, but 
then there would be a loss of scale for scaled drawings. I mainly want 
to use it for making 1 bpp drawings out of scans I have done. 
Everything else I have tried seems to end up with a higher bpp when 
convert to black and white is selected rather than gray scale.
